Chilly front desk love (or not)
Had to check out early due to illness - but front desk would not refund the one night balance of our trip. Some nonsense about not booking direct through the hotel, so "there was nothing they could do...."

4/10 Fair

Terrible experience
1. every time we come in it takes a very long time to check in. 2. the room wasn't available even tho we arrived at 5:30 and check in time was 4 pm 3. the room did not have any towels and when we arrived there was a lady still disinfecting the room. 4. the room was courtyard view and the room was very stuffy. so we opened the door and there were kids screaming (i mean literally screaming ) for hours echoing through the door into our room. I called the front desk to have someone tell them to quite down and that was never inforced. We come there to get away and not listen to screaming kids. And they weren't just playing, we be fine with that, they were obnoxious !!!! 5. There were No snacks in the room. You are a resort and covid is over, you should consider having some convenience snacks, drinks, etc... in the rooms if you are charging $500-800/ night for people to stay there !!!!j 6. The mattress and the pillows were so uncomfortable that my girlfriend and I both had neck cramps in the morning. Terrible experience all around

Room sat feet away from the noise of the highway, A/C kept going on and off, and could hear loud footsteps above all through the late night and early morning.
